New developments in packaging of eggs to improve safety and quality

Code: 9781838790851
Pietro Rocculi, University of Bologna, Italy

Chapter synopsis: The correct choice of the packaging system is a key factor for maintaining high-quality characteristics of eggs during storage. In this chapter, the fundamental aspects of shell egg packaging are reviewed. In particular, a possible explanation of critical issues will be discussed to offer an innovative solution of active packaging through the combination of CO2 atmosphere and humidity absorber. The proposed solution permits better maintenance of egg freshness during storage with the contemporaneous increase/modulation of its functionality.
